ankle spats

Injured (Trolls Fanfic)

Guess who’s back? And I’m bringing two drabbles. Here’s the first one.

AO3


Summary: Poppy shouldn’t have jumped from so high.


Branch kicked the door open before Satin, Chenille or DJ Suki could open it or him.

“Branch,” Poppy started to say, but he shushed her.

“No,” he interrupted. “Don’t talk.” He was annoyed, which made her feel like a child being scolded.

“Branch, I’m fine,” Poppy whined, crossing her arms and feeling strangely small being carried by his strong arms princess style. She realized she didn’t hate the sensation. “I can walk” she insisted when all the retinue followed inside.

“You have a sprained ankle,” he spat, and despite his harsh words, he put her gently on the bed. “You won’t be walking until you get that treated.”

Lean on me

My first attempt at writing some AsaNoya, and man, are they fun to write 

Fic Title: Lean on me

Summary: Noya gets injured, which finally gives Asahi an excuse to take care of him instead of the other way around. However, with Noya constantly leaning on him for support and touching him (always freaking touching him), Asahi is having a harder and harder time keeping his less-than-subtle feelings for Noya in check, and there’s growing evidence that he doesn’t need to anyways.(In which Noya sprains his ankle, Asahi sucks at flirting, and Suga is probably not the best person to ask for romantic advice.)

You can read on AO3, or below!

The court fell silent as Nishinoya slammed into the ground: there wasn’t a soul in the gym who hadn’t heard that heavy thud and dull crack.

Noya was on the ground and he wasn’t moving, and no one seemed to know what to do because it was Noya : the unstoppable, guardian god whonever fell. There was a heavy pause, and then movement stirred as Noya shifted and tried to stand. All bodies on the court breathed a sigh of relief and began to shift back to their normal mode of operation – Noya was functioning, he was getting back on his feet, and everything was going to be fine. Everybody except for Asahi that is, who was struck uncharacteristic uncertainty on Noya’s face as he hauled himself to his feet. He hadn’t seen Noya look anything less than perfectly confident since The Incident, and all of his instincts screamed at him to fix it. He couldn’t let Noya get hurt again.

Skip the romance. Now. Put all of that on hold: the vases, the windowsills, the legs on legs on floor. They do not belong on this side of the story. From this side, all you see is a vast lawn. A pasture, or a field, or an unkempt garden. This is what happened:

I wrote a sentence on my ankle, and then spat on my thumb and smudged it out of existence. Momentarily, I had revealed the truth, but then the expanse of my skin gulped it down, and all I was left with was a patch of blue. There is no name for that. 

He only saw the remnants of ink on my foot; he did not question them; he did not know. I tried to find a noun for that too, but failed.

Do you see now? This lawn? There are no wild daises in sight, from where I am, which means no need for the vase, which means no need for the windowsill. 

The grass swallows all limbs: no need for legs on legs. Forget all of that. (The truth: this story is a wasteland, regardless of where you happen to stand.)
